Lilly; the paintings are fine it's the manikins around the building that disturb me when I set up camp! Not one has a nice face!

Star: wow what a ride!

Morning all from my wonderful camp bed in the classroom. I'm being stared at by eight firefighters; thank goodness they're paintings!

Hosta: what a shame you struggle with photos now. For me uploading has never been better!

Just waiting for the day shift to arrive and then I get to go home.

To prove a point my friend with her very newborn posted just now that they managed four hours sleep. I managed 4.5! So I definitely do sleep better than a mother! :)

I'm in Yorkshire. At least when it rains we can claim it proper Yorkshire water and thus better than ordinary rain. ;)

One hour remaining. 

Pat I sleep better and longer than a parent with a new born so I consider myself lucky!

Enjoy your lay in Pat! :)

2 hours until I can set up camp. I'm amusing myself by alternating looking at plants with looking at German Shepherd puppies and then looking at chicken coops...

not the best mix!

Pond plant identification

I don't think it yellow flag. It looks nothing like mine. Unfortunately I can't identify it!

Can anyone else help?

Evening all.

Still at work; just another four hours before I can pitch my camp bed up in my classroom and snooze until the day shift take over.

At least tomorrow will be quiet! Just a gearbox change to do on my car :/

Do I really need all of the John Innes for seeds??

I just slap my seeds in whatever compost I have knocking around! Mind you I don't grow the difficult seeds that might benefit more.

Failed allotment inspection :(

Worth telling them you had a long holiday and will be doing it organically so they know it won't be a quick weedkiller and run fix.
